Here's something I've been working on on and off for a while, finally finished it! I'm mostly focusing on improving my drawing ability right now so it was fun to do some detailed character painting. This is also my first fully fleshed out character painting using my new Yiynova; it works like a charm. This painting is very significant to me, it being a landmark of my progress. 8 years ago I finished my first ever digital painting (at the time done on paintshop pro) and I've been remaking that same piece every two years ever since to track my improvement. I'm very pleased with the amount of improvement I see from the 2012 remake, so much has changed in two short years, I can't wait to see where I'll be at in 2016!
I drew Hercules for sketch dailies over on twitter, Monroe style!
I've been studying the properties of light and shadow, so I decided to put some of my new knowledge to the test with a quick face study.
Here's some quick landscape studies I painted, just getting my feet wet! Backgrounds are completely alien to me, so these little studies are to help me kind of understand what it is I'm drawing, I'm keeping things mostly in greyscale to get a handle on values too. I'm just going to keep pushing my way forward, it's super awkward and I have no idea what I'm doing but it's a lot of fun! Just gotta keep at it :)
